1 thought on “Athanasia”

  1. Um, no…I am far from simple, nice is not usually the word used to describe me, no one can change my oppinion, and I am very stable in my oppinions. I go by my middle name, but the so called “nicknames” are something I would never consider. I give you points for saying I’m reliable and express my agonies quickly, but that’s about it. O_o
